Every since we received the KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz I've been eager to start plugging in various 3D video boards to see what frame rates we could expect with an 800 MHz AMD Athlon processor. I decided to take the new 3dfx Voodoo3 3500, the soon to be shipped Matrox G400MAX, and the Hercules Dynamite TNT2 Ultra and put them to the test in our labs fastest system, the KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz system. I was also excited to see if the Matrox G400MAX, which in our previous testing was happiest with faster CPU's, would leap into the lead given the performance offered by the Athlon processor.
KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz Takes A Licking But Keeps On Ticking
As I mentioned in our "KryoTech's Cool Athlon 800 MHz " article we promised to hammer on this system during its stay in our lab. This system has had no breaks. I haven't found any problems with any video board that I have stuck into this system yet. The Voodoo3 3500, Matrox G400MAX and the Hercules Dynamite TNT2 Ultra all ran like a charm in the KryoTech unit.
